Wigan Warriors boss Matt Peet and Leeds Rhinos head coach Rohan Smith name debutants in surprising line-ups

Wigan Warriors and Leeds Rhinos have named their teams for tonight’s clash at Headingley.

The game is being broadcast live on Sky Sports with Wigan head coach Matt Peet bringing in Mike Cooper for Patrick Mago and Joe Shorrocks for Brad O’Neill.

Cooper therefore makes his debut for the Warriors after moving from the Warrington Wolves just this week.

Meanwhile, Leeds boss Rohan Smith has named his own debutant in his 17-man squad for the fixture, with Yusuf Aydin getting his first crack in Leeds colours as a substitute.

Interestingly, Smith has also gone with Zak Hardaker at fullback with Richie Myler and Cameron Smith in the halves. Liam Sutcliffe and Harry Newman occupy the centre positions whilst Rhyse Martin returns to the pack.
